Yes it is a very good scanner for use on the psd 7.3s and e4od trans. Make sure it has the ford odbII adapter and K19 (iirc) key. You can do buzz tests, contribution tests and see every that is being input to the ecm.

Do some searching to confirm, but I think it requires the K2 or K2a key to communicate with the PSD.

yes, you will need the OBD II (B) adapter, and a K2-A key....same setup for an 2002 powerstroke.

I have one, and they are very good....

only problem is they eat 9-volt batteries..... keep a few Energizers around.

I just thought my screen read "keep alive battery low,replace soon, located in left handgrip" as the default home screen

The Scanner works really good, I have had mine since 1995, and have kept it around for good reason. I would spend $200 on one if it had all the cartridges and OBD pins, lots of cars on the road that it still supports. Mine stays hooked up to the OBD a lot. There are a few things that it does not read on my truck for some reason...and my newer OTC will, but I do not get IVS, CLT or Engine RPM...but all the other data is there
